Jo Han Chul Talks About Acting With EXO’s D.O. In “100 Days My Prince”
During the interview, the actor praised EXO’s D.O. by saying, “[He] is someone who doesn’t need any other advice.”
He continued, “It might be because D.O. has gone through the idol lifestyle since he was young, but responsibility is ingrained into him. Even in acting, he has a unique attitude towards his projects. His concentration levels on set are tremendous. It’s touching. He never slacks off during rehearsals.”
Jo Han Chul then recalled a moment when he truly felt D.O.’s passion. He remarked while laughing, “There was a scene in which we stare each other down, but he wasn’t pushed back at all even against my energy as a senior [actor]. It was to the point where I felt a sense of rivalry arising.”
He added, “[D.O.] is a seasoned actor, and I’m excited to see his future plans. He’s a junior by many years, but I’m really jealous. How is it that everything he does, it does well?”
“100 Days My Prince” is a historical romance about the unusual love story between the fictional crown prince Lee Yool (played by EXO’s D.O.), who suffers from temporary amnesia after an accident, and Hong Shim (played by Nam Ji Hyun), the oldest unmarried woman in the Joseon Kingdom. Jo Han Chul plays the role of the king and Lee Yool’s only biological family member.
